Hike and Photograph

Members: Garrick Orchard, Michael Pfeiffer

We can go on short hike trips (or anywhere else around this region) to cool places to shoot some photos. This is different from the hiking group in that the purpose is not to do sports but to take photographs. We can go to peaks at sunrise/sunset, ghost towns, waterfalls, etc. Anyone interested in photography, sign up!
